just breathe

2 weeks since we've been back and its flown right on by........
i truely had an amazing day and needed it, i needed to just STOP and breathe

so i've become an iphone user {finally you all say hahaha}
and am a little addicted to instagram and looking forward to maybe doing the dec photo a day
see how busy mumma goes.....
above is where i spent 5 hours in dromana at the beach today it recharged my batteries and the company {thanks bek} filled me with hope, some direction for 2013 and just all over good vibes

i always seem to get into a little funk when i return from nz, i love melbourne and dont want to
move back but spending time with my fams and seeing neices and nephews growing up without
you around makes me feel sad at times and i had a wonderful time while back there....
zeke everyday has asked to see his girls {my neices} he loved them cuteness

i have some exciting things happening at the moment and will follow on in another post....
leave you with a little cliff hanger hehehe

wow featured in the herald sun

wow what a crazy week, as some of you know we headed to nz on the 26th
and flew in last night around 10.30ish so wee bit tired today
we had a wonderful time away and was so nice being at grandads 90th birthday,
and catching up with family and friends....
had some wonderful catch ups and of course always run out of time

anyway while we were away we were featured in the herald sun so i didn't get to see it until my girlfriend lovely lissie sent over some copies,
it was quite funny knowing everyone had read it or seen it and i had no idea what it looked like or said,
did any of you see it??????
 i had loads of lovely txt and messages thanks everyone
so if you didn't get to see it here it is........
again thanks for all the feedback it means a lot to me and looking forward
to being more proactive on blogland........
what would you like to see more of??????

question : do you have artwork/decor in your toilet????

i know such a random question.......
but do you have artwork/decor in your toilet????
when the photographers were here from the herald sun, i had to chuckle at myself
because throughout my house i have loads of art, ceramics {my fav} and bits and pieces
and low in behold i even have it in the dunny, outhouse, toilet...
seriously we are in a rental and its not real pretty {green unit, brown seat} so mumma had to
do something hehehehe

if we are honest how much time does one spend in the toilet and while your there why
not look at something pretty or something to flick through

its interesting how some toilets, {like recently at the chaplains dinner at the hyatt
the girls were saying how lovely the toilets were and yes they were hotel quality}
are so beautiful you rave to everyone back at the table/bar etc
public toilets, do you read the writing on the wall?????
in a mall, do you read the adverts on the back of the door????
i am one of those that do.........

few pics in my toilet

how nice has the sunshine been today????
enjoy your wed night lisa xx

baby jets first sleepover............

yes it was a busy weekend, but to be honest such a fun weekend.......
friday night was the first time we had jet {my nephf} over for a sleep over, zeke was so excited
all day he kept saying, "can we go and get him now"
once we picked him up we the four of us went on an adventure to bunnings {oh what fun we had}
do you like bunnings??????? i love bunnings we strolled around aimlessly, we swung on the swing seats, something me and zeke have done for years, jet loved it.....
then it was home for dinner + bathtime + bed
jet was a pure delight, i miss my nieces and nephew so much and having a little nephew around the corner is lovely......
then it was off to the skate park sat morning.......
looking forward to cuddles tonight {family dinner night}

then sat arvo our lovely lissie came around for a birthday dinner for her, we just love spending time with lissie and it was so nice to just love on her

then sunday we were all packed up and off to the flemington markets, loved seeing familiar faces and love it when friends pop in, its like a meeting place hehehe

here are a few other snaps of the weekend

for lissies birthday dinner, we had corn fritters, topped with cheese, red onion, tomato, advo {in lemon juice + splash of tabasco sauce} coriander, salad, bacon + sour cream
seriously yummy my mouth is watering while i type........
and for dessert pav with cream cheese frosting + cream, raspberries + toasted almonds

and for all the photos taken at the markets check them out here............
i'll be loading you up with toooo many pics otherwise, hope your all having a great week so far
can't believe its thursday already, this week has flown by

road trip to pick up gregs dream car....

what a weekend........
i had the red hill markets on saturday which was so good getting back into the swing of
things, i hadn't done a craft market in a few months, off to flemington in a few weeks also...
then 5.30am {on fathers day} greg, zekky and myself headed off on a road trip
to mt. gambier to pick up gregs dream car.......
he has wanted this car {oh for about 18 years} it is so much his dream car its the colour he's wanted
and everything about it is down to the 'T', he is one shuffed lad........
we had the best trip and i forgot how much i miss road trips, we used to do them a lot in nz
we arrived in mt. gambier in good time and the couple we bought the car off were so lovely and
friendly, i think hubbs might have another car buddy

then it was off to warrnambool to the camping ground for the night SO MUCH FUN......
we caught up with friends who have recently moved there and their two adorable little girls
zeke loved it......we did so much in such a small amount of time and yet
we had such a relaxing time away

+ some more pics of the dream car & time away

this is the face as we left warrnambool the next day.....he really did not want to go
he keep saying, "go back, please go back"

we had to assure him we were going camping very soon, so looks like a little
weekend away very soon in the tent it is......i do love that he loves camping
have a wonderful week lisa xx
